Delivery Group Meeting – February 2021

Partners discuss possibilities for Gravity site   

Emerging principles that will shape Gravity’s future as a place for businesses to invest and create thousands of high value jobs have been shared with partners.

Technical diagrams setting out how different parts of the site could be used to create a sustainable, smart campus were discussed at the latest Gravity Delivery Group meeting on 24 February.

The group, which contains local and national partners, has been set up to facilitate the delivery of Gravity as an Enterprise Zone and internationally renowned smart campus.

They are meeting regularly as Gravity progresses with fresh plans in a Local Development Order to create 4,000 jobs and attract international investment into the UK at the former Royal Ordnance Factory site.

A connected community

Other matters discussed at the session included the emerging plans to make the site well connected and accessible for people who live and work there – a key part of Gravity’s sustainability ambitions. In addition to the link road which is progressing well, Gravity aims to provide smart transport connections that minimise carbon emissions. A restored rail service, bus services and support for electric and autonomous vehicles as well as micro mobility (e-bikes and scooters) and safe leisure routes for walking, cycling and horse riding, all form part of this overall ambition.

We will hold another webinar on the subject of connectivity on March 17, which is open to all members of the community and local businesses. Anyone who’s interested in joining us and feeding in your ideas about the future of work and transport, and mobility choices in the locality can sign up here.
